Detailed information on the operational content of each project

Click here to see which files you’ve made, and how much time it takes for each project.

Coding and browsing time

In the graph in the upper right corner, you can see the time of coding and browsing. As shown in the picture, it can be seen that the dev has been browsing more than coding.

Working time of the current day

Display working time in current day. An arrow can be used to switch between dates.

Compare to the previous day

Compare working time to see how much increase and decrease. This is a function that evokes great determination, isn’t it? (But don’t be excited if you’re working 24 hours a day, deadly!)

Language used

Displays the language that you use personally. But the downside is that Browser is classified in the Other section


Displays used editors. And because Browser is classified in Other, Other is as big as in the picture, you can see that browsing is more than coding.

Other function Has set “Goal” function for working time. This function will run the batch to get working time (from GitHub for example). The free version can be used for 2 weeks, but if you like you can upgrade to the paid version later.
